Uha is a very light fish soup that is eaten as first course. Uha can be made with any large fish. The fish I used is Bass, that Alex caught. I make Uha if I have fresh fish, but frozen is fine too.
4 Quarts of water
1 large onion
2 bay leaves
1 large fish scalded and insides removed
3 tablespoons salt
5 medium potatoes diced into 1 inch pieces
1 carrot cut into circles
1/4 cup Parsley
Fill pot with 4 quarts of water. Add bay leaves, peppercorns, and onion cut into quarters but not all the way through. bring to a rolling boil and turn heat onto medium low or until its simmering. let simmer for 15 minutes. Add fish head. let simmer another 15 minutes
while you are simmering your stock. Slice carrots, Potatoes and cut fish into large 2 inch thick slices
strain stock and throw away all solids in the stock, but back on the stove and add carrots and potatoes. Let simmer (do not boil or Uha will turn murky) until potatoes are just about done 8-10 minutes. add salt and fish and let simmer another 8-10 minutes add more salt if necessary. Garnish with Parsley and fresh onions.
Makes 8-10 servings
